If you have a dense white (mature) cataract can you still choose to have femto (laser-assisted) cataract surgery or does it have to be the traditional method?
The opening of the lens capsule and the corneal incisions can be made with the laser in this type of cataract and, in my opinion, can make the surgery safer. I would ask your surgeon to be sure he or she is comfortable with this type of surgery.
